    Wonderful piece @Debasish Majumder.

You wrote a powerfully beautiful poem. Thank you. "Sound, a mystic form of energy/Silence only engulf us with fear and unknown destiny..."

    Beautiful @Debasish Majumder. You wrote, "Sound, a mystic form of energy," I agree. That reminds me of a video I saw of a newborn. After the baby is born they put him/her in a bucket like tub. As soon as the baby is pulled out above the chest the baby cries, but as soon as the baby is placed back in with the water up to the baby's neck, he/she stops crying immediately and falls asleep.

    @Phil Friedman as you pointed out, yes absolutely these people use social media to grab attention. Some kind of narcissistic action actually, they try to wake people's compassion for their selves. Just like we know the people who plot suicide attempts never talk about it to their friends or family members, the people who really need some advice never ask any person, until they find someone who can truly understand them. Thank you very much for your great point!

    26/07/2017 #5 Phil Friedman
    I understand and agree completely with the point you make. What I don't understand is why people who don't want comments parade their personal stories in front of thousands of people on social media in the first place. To gain attention without connection? To offload emotional turmoil onto others because misery loves company? Connection is a two-way street. And if it isn't connection someone wants when they reveal their woes, then for me it's simply TMI. Cheers!

I might only add one tool to your analyses and that is one which complements the SWOT. I have found undertaking at PEST (Political. Economic. Social. Technical) analysis is also very useful. It forms part of my Brand Clarity exercise wherein I help companies define the essence of their brand. Good stuff folks. Will share.

    #7 I don't think, @Milos Djukic, it has passed, but rather that it never really was. It was introduced by LinkedIn as a vehicle to build its membership, but was never really backed up with a genuine commitment to the principles of publishing. And candidly, although I believed at one point there was an opportunity for beBee to actually bring it to fruition, I am growing ever more doubtful that social media can ever move beyond non-sentient click-click networking which may, as you believe, lead to self-organization, but which I believe leads to entropic intellectual stasis.

    Phil Friedman
    24/07/2017 #5 Phil Friedman
    #1 Jim and Milos, people tend to forget that the LinkedIn "long form post" publisher dates back only to early 2014. Before that, all posts on LI were in the form of updates in the general feed and discussions in groups. The publishing platform was attractive because it offered long-form bloggers an opportunity to reach more readers than from an individual website.

    Later, when LinkedIn failed to perform on its promises to writers to support their networking efforts (and indeed chose to actively undermine those efforts), some of us turned to beBee, which promised openly and in print to always distribute 100% of a writer's posts to 100% of that writer's followers 100% of the time.

    I do agree with both of you, however, that short forms of expression are often just as or more effective in generating engagement and exchange. And I have myself taken to using these more in recent months, especially on LinkedIn, where the update feed appears not to choke down distribution in the same way as the Pulse publisher feed.

    Nevertheless, I continue to believe it possible to blend both approaches on a single platform such as beBee, if only serious attention would be paid to developing hives (groups) that enable those interested to run SOME hives as digital special-interest magazines, with control of content and active stimulation of discussion by owners and administrators. I guess it comes down to whether you consider a social media platform to ever have the potential for being home to serious writing efforts or whether you see them as venues for the digital game of clicking, liking, and connecting to no end other than itself. Cheers!

    Nice one @Jim Murray! I almost completely quit my writing of long-form articles in social media. And for the good reasons. Supersaturation on all levels. I beleive that short forms and exchanges of brief content are more closer to the essenece of social media. What is really impressive never shines only flashes occasionally.

    #14 reverse engineering a platform is fascinating, the team has to put themselves in the shoes of the several generation of solutions architects,mprojects managers and coders who made LI evolved from its initial state. It appear that users enegagement caanot be all monitored, because your audience is not entirely made of followers. Making it a metric makes nonsense say former LI collaborators. The most important metric on LI is the conversion of suers into clients to calculate ROI.

    #18 |Hi Matt i use an OpenSource web server to Market on all SM, and i don't address to my follower base, i look outside the LI box and that allows me to get 1835 LinkedIn searches a week that convert into 4 to 5 meeting weekly. LinkedIn is a landing plaform where users can turn the communication switch towards you...there again limited by LinkedIn inmail LOL.

    I think new tool for social media and digital marketing analysis, automation and proactive workflows are the next avenue. You cannot change FB, LI or twitter or any platforms, but you can perform an autopsy to analyze the causes: LOL ...pick your choice: a) death 2) dysfunctions & disease 3) the workflows etc...
    Affordable, not apps, but web servers S.a.a.S, are the key to override issues and master these platforms. Today these platforms decide of your fate....tomorrow you can have technology serving your goals, not theirs. And that time is coming sooner that you think. And it doesn't rely on API management always. My humble opinion..i am not debating here... Just because performance relies on quality content and affinity propagation.

    #14 LOL thanks for the compliment, but i doubt so. \\\\\\\\\\\\\All the programming they do at LI as a specific purpose, l imitating users was a demographic growth issue they knew they would hit at some point. The conception itself wasn't affinity oriented, which is the core advantage of beBee. LI was initially created for 10 000+ employers that needed a global reach HR tool for funneling competition's candidate, then they aimed to democratized towards SMBs, then make individual think they need to be in the database...and they succeed: 430 M+ jumped, including me. Not being on LinkedIn is like refusing to learn english and code your program only with Olmeque's language.

    I was thinking of....reverse engineering LinkedIn to better understand the LI mind set, and the inner secrets of its coding, if it does make a sense and what that sense could be? Everything works for a reasons and the opposite too, the journey is about tp find how, and not why...human factor was probably there when compiling code with or without a master solution architects and with what the manage the core project management. I wouldn't be surprised to discover wonderful gems of mismanagement and lack of prospective vision. It is not because it is big that it wasn't done with common sense. Behind the scenes views and hints reveals always good things to know. After you just feel like Simon Pegg in a comedy....Not surprised but caught in dire straights. LOL.

    Nice post @Barbara Henslee. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You've touched upon something that has been on my mind: the two innate urges that we all have that seem to be opposite: the urge to grow and expand and Self-Realize, and the urge to contract, stay safe and create reliable patterns.

    Thank you @Barbara Henslee for your post which is written with fluidity & a layout that makes this so easy to read and understand.

    Who am I ? Self-realization
    " I’m good at things I’d never thought of before.
    I don't have to continue things that I’m not very good at or enjoy.
    I can explore something else & learn by mistakes.
    I can look at my family traits to help me discover and change myself. " (paraphrased)

    Above these are the kernel of personal change. It's important to work on the inside and the outside. Both Nature & Nurture

    I use these ideas everyday to help my clients move on with their lives after tragedy and trauma or to get a new job.

    While
    "Live and work with the possibility, maybe even the reality, that you are constantly being β€œinterviewed.” "
    maybe ok for some people, for those with mental health issues esp related to anxiety,
    I wouldn't use this concept.

    Instead I would encourage them to do the best they can as much as they can without overdoing it.

    I love this concept
    "Remember that self-discovery is a journey, not a destination."
    So often process is sacrificed for $ and speed which often hurts and alienates people.

    "I hope you are on "A journey worth taking."

    Nature includes atrocities, whereas atrocities are what we view through the lens of our own humanity. You have written a poem about that humanity but I do not underestimate how atrocious nature can be. If human beings are adding to man-made causes of devastating climate consequences, that is because of decisions that lack humanity - what nature does to counter man's effects is not human at all, it is simply nature adapting. When human beings are no more, it is like saying that dinosaurs are no more - and in that also, nature simply evolves, that we apply human consequence or even morality to nature, demonstrates how self-important we think we are - when the reality is we should be humble, far more humbler than we are today as a human race.

    #8 I totally agree with @Paul Walters that it is not just about more and more and more, there is a personal choice involved for those who choose it and here quality of life may be a choice or quality of learning (and there are people who renounce material things - though please, I still personally want quality of life as well as quality of learning). We are still predicated on thinking we are teaching others, when the process of teaching is the learner. This is a quite a paradox as to what education is, but one I do most welcome. That is why I think personal brand is a joke where I can see right through people. I get to see what I want to see, which is the soul of being, and not the sale of a person. Success is an illusion we paint in our minds, but to measure our life in terms of meaning - then I become a bee who believes in being - "TO BEE WHAT IT IS YOU WANT TO BE".

    Welcome the honey Debasish ! Watch out for one word that I have begun to see being used rather a lot, which is the word hyperbole or hyperbolic, somehow it is one of those words that is getting more airplay in the zeitgeist right now. Hyperbole means excess, overstatement, exaggeration, embellishment and fellow netizens may all becoming hyperbolic about hyperbole is kind of strangely ironic :-) I am sure someone famous must have said it or sung about it or filmed it but it is seems like the currency right now. Let's just hope it wasn't triggered by something Trump said or did for our obsession with Mr. T. is now definitely excessive.

    #4 Having lived with physiological hypersensitivity every day of my life and mental hypersensitivity in periods, like lots of stuff in life, there are gifts and burdens. They are inter-related, but also separate, in my experience.

    Here is an example of how two personality states that often get confused, may overlap, but are felt entirely differently. Shyness versus introversion. Introverts want to leave the crowd, they don't want to be the life of the party. Shy people do want to be socially interactive, and they have a lot of mental anguish over why they cannot be bubbly and mingle without preempting themselves.

    The quality of the mental chatter differs greatly around what appears on the outside to be the exact same behavior.

    Speaking from experience in this very moment, if a person wants to be different, but is stuck running their same patterns that prevent them from schmoozing with strangers or stepping into meaningful, well-paying work, then that hypersensitivity has become a problem that consulting a healer/guide, of any kind, can help calm the hyperactive mind that is locked in a certain set of repeating thoughts.

    My hypersensitivity to smell, on the other hand, as I experience it, while it does affect how I can be in the world, is, in my opinion telling me something important about the toxicity of human created and attenuated smells. My body is saying these sorts of smells have hurt you before and will do so again, so let's skedaddle, fast. I have no mental turmoil around the validity of these signals.

    Same for me on the few extra-sensory perceptions that arise for me. No mental turmoil. Just utter curiosity and a willingness to heed what I know.

    Thank you, Tricia, for this informative, insightful and educational blogging buzz. I really enjoyed reading this and learning more about ESP versus HSP. I've always found myself to have some semblance of ESP -- like thinking of a person right before they contact me, or thinking exactly what someone else just said before I could say it.
    Also, on a lighter note, I would surely let my hair grow longer if that were possible. However, as midlife approaches I feel fortunate to at least have a receding hair line (lol). And here's another attempt at humor: for the sports lovers out there who may not be interested in ESP, there's always ESPN!
    Keep up the brilliant blogging buzz, Tricia...

    Tremendous post, @Tricia Mitchell.So much richness.

    But off the top of my head - how can I resist? - the hair information is utterly new to me. At the intellectual level. On the physical level, I have 3 feet of utterly natural red curly hair.

    There are a couple things I've observed about these knowings that are outside of what we commonly talk about. First of all, there needs to be a level of being comfortable with silence and aloneness to notice some of these uncommon perceptions. Secondly, we need to tune down the prefrontal cortex executive functions in order to access this information at first. Although there are a lot of studies that show statistically relevant results, where things are right now reproducibility is a challenge. I posit that that is because mostly we've all been taught to learn with our memorization caps on. This measurement and analysis functioning is antithetical to the burgeoning of these extra-sensory capacities, therefore until we get the preconditions of the mind set to the right frequency, those of us who can't dial in, struggle to learn from those who can.

    #3 Thank you @🐝 Fatima G. Williams. I always admire your rich use of metaphors and images in your writing. You prove my point that metaphor is the language of creative thinking.

    You know @Sara Jacobovici- my stand on this issue. Imagination and metaphors are inseparable twin. People who object to metaphors shall fail to communicate and come out with creative ideas. We use metaphors without realizing that we are using them. Let me explain- I read a buzz in which the author attacked brutally metaphors. I read his buzz and commented- you stand against metaphors, but do you realize how many metaphors are embedded in your words? There were more than fifteen of them. I then commented again showing the hidden metaphors in his article. An author discarding metaphors when he was vividly using them. This is a paradox for you to solve Sara. Anyway, the article was deleted post to my comment.
    I am sure lots of authors who object to metaphors use them without realizing they do.

    Metaphors are expansive, the way people may make use of them can be limiting.
    I can yet to work my way around using them and this article explains the language of imagination vividly. Thank you Sara

    Speaking of metaphors, using a hammer to remove a screw conveys so much.... a one time operation, full of destruction, rather than applying the right tool, which provides a sustainable option of rescrewing and unscrewing as often as necessary.

    A fitting celebration for a word that enhances our communications toolbox in so many ways, @Sara Jacobovici
